The Best Sledding Spot In New Hampshire

If you’ve been keeping a watch on the state’s weather forecast, you’ve heard that we’re expecting to get slammed with an epic snowstorm this weekend. The state Emergency Operations Center is already preparing, snow plows are at the ready, and the meteorologists are predicting 18 to 24 inches over Friday night. Now, I’m sure that skiers all across […]

My $11.91 Weekend

Since having a child, I’ve become so cheap! Mostly because I’m broke from spending all my money on said child (either now or saving for his future). So I’m always pretty proud when I can fill up a weekend with fun activities for no money. Here’s a recap of last weekend. Saturday: I worked out […]


Fun @ Stay Work Play

14th Annual Penguin Plunge for Special Olympics New Hampshire I asked Santa for a puppy for Christmas this year.  When I asked for the puppy, I never expected Santa to bring said puppy.  But Santa never fails to deliver, and now I have the special honor of standing outside in single digit degree temperatures in […]


I’d Instagram You With No Filter

It’s hard to believe but Valentine’s Day is around the corner. It’s one of those “Hallmark Holidays,” and most definitely a love/hate thing for the majority of humans. I however, am a big fan of the heart filled holiday. I’m not sure if it’s the decorations that make me go ga-ga or the conversation hearts […]

Be like the duck.

I don’t know about you guys, but I loved Alyssa’s post last week about her roommates. I also love lists. Like, live for them. Sometimes, I make to-do lists with things on them that I’ve already done, just for the satisfaction of crossing them off. This isn’t normal, I know, but I digress. Anyway, it […]


Remembering J.D. Salinger

This time of year, I always find myself remembering J.D. Salinger. It was around this time of year – two years ago – that I fired up the engine in my Nissan Xterra and drove over 100 miles on slippery, ice-laden highways up to Cornish, New Hampshire, to hunt down the well-hidden home of J.D. […]


Hello, New Hampshire.

Thank you for welcoming me on a rainy, cold, blustery day in early March 2011. I remember exactly how it felt to cross over the Piscataqua Bridge, see the buildings of Portsmouth, the fog coming in from the ocean, and the banks of my new home stretching before me to the west. And I felt […]
